What the community says about Before I Die

  • Andrés Álvarez
    Written on May 11, 2018
    "The best YA book of 2007 is Before I Die by Jenny Downham. Faced with the reality of dying in a few months, Tessa compiles a list of things she wants to do before she meets her maker. High up on the list is sex. It is an erotic yet thought-provoking story of how one young woman deals with mortality. "

    "Knowing your death is near is a truly unique way to walk through the world. Not all of us will have that experience, but for anyone who does, or is the loved one of someone who does, this book is incredibly moving. This is an inspiring read for anyone with a terminal illness, especially cancer patients!"

    "Before I Die is simply tragic. Everyone approaches cancer differently. This book is good but puts too much of a positive spin on what is a realistically horrific thing, Cancer. I would not recommend it as a best book about dealing with cancer. I find the hospice books, written by nurses are much more uplifting. "

    "A moving read about how a woman is dealing with the last few months of her life. It could help others in a similar situation to view things from her perspective and find some comfort."

    "This young adult novel is full of heavy themes. A girl who is faced with death wants to live and has to do so in the few short months she has left. The writer tells the story beautifully and I teared up quite a few times. The premise isn't new but the story is artfully told while still being raw, emotional, and uplifting."
